Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
What every Atheist and non believer don’t realize, is every good gift they have in life, came from God. Love is from God, therefor without God their marriage would not be possible. Children are from God, therefor without God, they wouldn’t have children. Even those who reject God, he still showers his gifts on them as Jesus said “ The rain falls on the just and the unjust” (Matthew 5:45)
Therefor when we think about eternity, life without Jesus would mean total removal and separation from , not only God, but all these gifts that he has given us also. There is no Love in Hell, there is No Peace in Hell, because there is no God in Hell
Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. James 1:18
Not only did God give us these gifts here now on Earth, but he gave us the ultimate gift of Eternal Life through his Son Jesus Christ. When the Bible talks about the firstfruits, that’s what its talking about the resurrection.
Because of what Christ has done for us on the cross and defeated sin and death, we will be raised at the resurrection in our immortal bodies as the firstfruits to God. Notice it says because of Gods own will, meaning God loved us before we loved him. He chose to save us and die for us, when you realize this you understand the amazing love and gifts God has given to us!
Think about the gifts you have today in your life, remember to Thank God because every good gift from above , Amen!
